[Resolved] Alamo Car Rental / cars bad conditions

Mexico Review updated:

i rented a car in Tuxtla Gutierrez, Chiapas airport. The first car they gave me, the air conditioning didn't work, i reported to them and they gave another one, it wast worse, when I try to see how fast I was going, i realiced that the speedometer didn work, then the brakes were not in the optimus conditions, and the air conditionign worked one day, the next day did not. I reported all these bad conditions, and they were aware of it, but they couldn´t do anything.
So, how dare to rent cars in poor conditions?? if they were aware of it, why they didn´t notifed me???????

    I rented a car in June. The brakes were bad. I was riding through the Chattanooga mountains at 11:00 at night. I phoned customer service and he did not know how to get me to the chattanooga rental place. Once I got back to nashville to report my complaint. I was told I was lying, the manager refused to come and talk to me, ans I was given bad numbers when I asked how to speak with someone over them. On the phone, I was told that I should be greatful that I got an employee discount. He then questioned me about what family member gave it to me. I told him my cousin. He then wants to know if it was my first, second, or 3rd cousin because 2nd counsins aren't considered family. Just stupid. My cousin then gets a phone call the next day saying he needs to check himself about who he gives the family credit to. This has gone on for months. I was told I would get a full refund and now no one seems to remember saying this.

    Alamo Car Rental - poor state of the van
    Auto Klick S.A. de C.V.

    I have a complaint regarding the rental of a van in San Jose del Cabo, Baja California Sur, México

    I rented a Mini Van for 7 days to cover around 1500 km in Baja. Alamo knew I was going out to road as I will return it in another city.

    I had a van with 119.000 km, badly worn tires and windshield wipers with the risk that this has. They told me it was the only one they had for rent.

    Before I left Cabos, the Van indicated that needs to change the oil. Of course I didn´t take the risk of leaving the city and have an incident on the road. I had to waste an hour and a half or two trying to get it fixed at the Alamo´s garage

    Upon they realize i would take a highway and saw the state of the tires, finally traded it for another Van that was going to get another customer (who surely got mine).

    They deducted 40.00 U.S. and 1/4 tank for lost time, I wonder what value they give to FAMILY TIME 1, 000 kms from home?

    It is a shame that rent cars in that state.

    I wish I had an answer for you.
